DETERMINANTS OF PERFORMANCE OF NURSING GRADUATES IN LICENSURE EXAMINATION

Publisher: Bicol University
Abstract

The study aimed to determine the factors affecting the performance of Bicol University graduates in the Nurses’ Licensure Examination (NLE). Specifically, it determined the (1) profile of the graduates such as: pre-admission profile (College Entrance Test or CET, General Weighted Average or GWA in high school) and performance in nursing school (academic performance and Related Learning Experience or RLE); (2) performance of graduates in the NLE; (3) relationship between the profile of the respondents and their performance in the NLE; and (4) predictors to passing the NLE. Using the stratified random sampling design, this descriptive-evaluative research gathered the secondary data of 247 graduates who took the NLE from 2003 to 2007. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of the graduates who passed the NLE had a very satisfactory to superior pre-admission profile and superior academic performance in the nursing program. There is a positive correlation between the NLE rating and the profile of the graduates. Among the profile variables, academic performance was found to be the best predictor in the NLE; thus, students with excellent pre-admission profile who perform well in nursing school are most likely to pass the NLE. It is, therefore, imperative for the college to adhere to the admission policies and to institute teaching-learning strategies in assisting the students to achieve an excellent academic performance to pass the NLE.
